Robert Thompson, Owner, Main Photographer

You are an experience.

Based in Merseyside, an area of unique rustic buildings and waterside scenery, I aim to tell your stories through the wordless alchemy of photographs. The camera started off as a hobby, following like my shadow, and it didn’t take long for me to realise that I never wanted to put it down.

I’m inspired by raw candid moments, cultural gallivanting, beauty in the imperfect, and great conversations. While my speciality is indeed timeless wedding photography, Autofocus is versatile to fit you; from sweeping gowns in a dewy forest and the delicate ruins of an English cathedral, to modern, quirky studio shoots. No matter the setting, I consider it a privilege to work with a range of such versatile and compelling people, and feel that I owe it to them to deliver the best of our talent and expertise. 

In my spare time, you can find me enjoying the independent art scene, people watching in the city, and seeking out like-minded creatives.

You are an experience. Make yourself a good experience.



Our Mission

To capture your special moments with fresh but classic photography, creating beautiful images you’ll enjoy for year's to come

What We've DONE SO FAR

From a few weddings here and there, we’ve built a business that focuses on the people we photograph, born from a love of capturing moments worth remembering. You can visit our wedding gallery here for a taste of the images we create.

We’ve also worked on commercial projects including food photography for The Firepit Bar and Grill restaurants, and event photography for a Shadazzle School of Performing Arts.
